DESCRIPTION:
Starring Charlton Heston and Roddy McDowall, Planet of the Apes (1968) is a legendary science fiction masterpiece. Astronaut Taylor and crew crash-land on a distant planet ruled by apes who use a primitive race of humans for experimentation and sport. As Taylor finds himself among the hunted, his life is left in the hands of a benevolent chimpanzee scientist.

We will kick off a semester-long Planet of the Apes retrospective with a 50th anniversary screening of the film followed by a conversation featuring special guests from across the Apes franchise who will share personal stories and discuss the legacy of the film and its enduring impact on popular culture.
